KeyStreptoTM is an essential management component in combating fireblight outbreaks in commercial apple and pear orchards. An effective bactericide, KeyStreptoTM is used to control bacterial diseases of pip fruit trees, stone fruit trees and seedling tomatoes. The active ingredient in KeyStreptoTM is streptomycin, a bactericidal antibiotic. KeyStreptoTM is manufactured in New Zealand for Key Industries Ltd.
Trees affected by fireblight produce fewer apples which reduces the volume of fruit for export. Although fireblight has no effect on the quality of fruit, if fireblight spores were to be found on fruit being exported to countries like Japan and Australia, shipments would be rejected at great cost to the NZ apple export market.
